About the Program
DIS is a non-profit study abroad foundation established in Denmark in 1959, with locations in Copenhagen and Stockholm. Students can study at DIS for the semester or full academic year and take courses taught by local faculty members in English. DIS offers high-impact learning experiences for upper-division undergraduate students from distinguished North American colleges and universities. The intellectually challenging curriculum is broad, cutting edge, and enriched by experiential learning components, including faculty-led study tours across Europe. It provides students with opportunities for meaningful cultural engagement and personal growth, which is further enriched through housing and extracurricular offerings.

Stockholm, Sweden
On any given day, find yourself in the midst of a bustling crowd of Stockholmers on their morning commute. Before you know it, you have wandered to the old city, and time escapes itself to an entirely different pace where buildings, cobblestones, and narrow streets take you back to Stockholm’s 13th century beginning.
Stockholm is effortless to explore. Comprised of fourteen islands, with a public transit system that travels across waterways, the city is well connected. While some corners of Stockholm are characteristically urban, others are natural landscapes – making your next cross-country ski adventure or kayaking afternoon all within easy reach.
While rich in history and culture, Sweden prides itself on progressive thinking, openness, diversity, and equality. As home to the Nobel Prize and a list of prestigious universities, institutions, and leading innovators, Stockholm offers the context of a capital led by forward-looking decision makers and scholars.

Academic Culture
All Tulane students are encouraged to undertake a course of study that includes the required Swedish Language and Culture course. In addition, students will enroll in one discipline-specific core course. This core course includes two course-integrated study tours: one short regional study tour in Sweden early in the semester and one longer European study tour in the middle of the semester. Students will round out their academic program by choosing three additional courses from the electives offered at DIS.  Tulane students may not take courses in business, finance, or marketing offered at DIS.
For yearlong students the second semester offers new courses and the option of participating in faculty-supervised independent study in several fields. 

Student Life
Each semester, university students from across North America study at DIS. While you will take your courses alongside American students, DIS provides many ways for you to become immersed in Swedish culture and to pursue extra-curricular activities, from sports to student government. DIS organizes many activities, such as the Diverse Identities Social Club, Academic Seminar nights and sports clubs such as Running and Yoga. In addition, through housing and volunteer opportunities, students can live with Swedish university students or a local family, and engage with a local organization based on your interests. 
DIS offers a variety of housing arrangements.  Tulane students may choose to stay in either homestays, a Living & Learning Community, a residential community, or a Studentboende. DIS housing options aim to give you the opportunity to build communities, both within your housing and with locals in the surrounding area; experience personal growth and development; and engage locally in a meaningful way, by either living with locals or reaching out to local communities beyond your housing. Because of the variety and diversity of options, we recommend that interested students research the different benefits of these choices to find the best housing situation to enhance your semester in Stockholm!
